MSNBC, Mainstream Media Under Attack for Biased Gaza Coverage

MSNBC is the hot seat after being accused of having a pro-Israeli bias in its coverage of the conflict in Gaza. While on-air Monday, Rula Jebreal scolded the network for being “disgustingly biased” and ignoring the plight facing Palestinians as Israel and Hamas continue their fighting. Shortly after her critique, the journalist took to Twitter to claim that all of her future appearances had been cancelled, prompting a major backlash that prompted the network to have her reappear and make her case.
